    Several years ago, it was widely discussed in this region that a particular psychologist would charge police applicants $75 for an evaluation, the results of which were almost always “inconclusive.” However, after another evaluation, at $50, the applicants were within acceptable parameters.

    I guess agreeing to pay for the follow-up evaluation was deemed to be evidence of good judgment, willingness to accept authority, and recognition that things just aren’t really fair in the real world. Clever testing procedure.
